The ANZAC Mural was painted in 2003 by local artist Droogie – and has been nominated as a permanent piece on the Bondi Beach Graffiti Wall by Waverley Council – to honour the members of the armed forces that gave their lives to keep us safe.
2010 was a great year for graffiti on the Bondi Beach Graffiti Wall – and thanks to Dean at Land of Sunshine, we have 18 images that he took in January 2011 of panels on the wall. We need your help – to identify the artists.
We have worked out two (thanks SG and Silver) – but we need a hand with the remaining 16, so if you know the artist could you message us (and them) with their contact details so that we can properly add these images to the community website.
Well it has been a busy year on the Bondi Beach Graffiti Wall – we have had some amazing art created by some incredibly talented artists.
Here are a couple of videos that I took on Christmas Eve 2017 – and although my videography is amateurish, I hope you see some of your favourites.
Once again, thanks to the artists for brightening up Bondi, to Waverley Council for curating the wall, and to everyone who shared images on Facebook and Instagram. Keep sending them and I’ll keep adding the pages to the website!
The time lapse video is now up of street artist Shannon Boyd’s mural “A New Hope” on the Bondi Beach Graffiti Wall – featuring Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) of Star Wars.

And if you haven’t seen 2017 – Clickbait get down to the beach ASAP – you’ve only got seven weeks left til they start painting over this season’s murals!
There’s ice skating, art and entertainment, and for the first time, the Bondi Eye, giving visitors a birds eye view of Bondi Beach from a 32 metre high ferris wheel!
Soaring high above the iconic Bondi Beach, the Bondi Eye will give visitors spectacular 360 degrees views, enjoyed away from the chilly sea breeze in a glass capsule.

Max from @Activated walls booked four sections of the Bondi graffiti sea wall. He asked a bunch of artists who’ve worked with him to do ‘portrait’ shaped murals. Lukas decided to …
So it looks like the winners (and yet-to-be-winners) of this season’s applications to paint the Bondi Beach Graffiti Wall have now been notified – with Ayla the Caveman stating that she was #bitterasfuck that she wasn’t selected.
One artist (Emma Carey) has started work this week – we will see another ten panels complete before Christmas and the remainder of the fifty five panels will be completed before the end of February. Check out this intricate bit of work from Em’s Facebook page – I wonder if her wall work will be as detailed as this.
The council received over 140 applications to paint the wall this year – which once they rejected commercial or inappropriate applications, they short-listed, giving priority to new artists and whittled down to the chosen few.
If you didn’t succeed this time then there will be plenty of opportunity to apply again for the June 2017 intake, me – I just can’t WAIT for some new paint on the wall.
